But I just had to say something. I loved this movie. I loved it as a person just chilling out on her couch wanting to watch something good, and I loved it even more as someone who works with and for teenagers and young adults.
Prescient soothsayer Richard Lawson over at Gawker was totally right in his irrational hatred of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist : it is a quarterlifer's false idealization of his or her generic suburban teenhood. However, having seen the movie I need to defend one instance where Nick and Norah becomes a completely realistic portrayal of New Jersey-bred nerds. When Nick and Norah finally consummate their movie-long sexual tension, their hookup is exactly the the way two indie rock obsessed year-olds would get down in real life. The sordid details minor spoiler alert after the jump! Nick is fondling a sweet Stratocaster but making goo-goo eyes at Norah. Norah decides to take matters into her own hands quel surprise!
Warning: this post kinda contains a spoiler about the movie, but chillax, you'll live! The first half of the film was everything I wanted: Kat Dennings' Norah amazing, amazing lips; schmoopy Michael Cera Nick , who I just wanted to give big mama bear squeeze to; a great supporting role from a busted-ass car even worse than the '83 VW I used to drive; fun music. Then this weird sub-plot about Norah never having had an orgasm before appeared halfway through the film and I was, like, "Whaaaaaaaaat? Here's how it went down: Norah has a crush on Nick and that pisses off Tris, a deceitful little reptile who happens to be Nick's ex-girlfriend. Tris is trying to mess with Norah's head, so she corners her in a convenience store and tells her the word on the street is despite having had a friend-with-benefits for three years, Norah has never had an orgasm before.
If we do, I will be back to share my experiences. She was a mormon and he finally joined the church at For 40 years there was a disconnect and she really viewed him as a lesser person cause he wasn't a member. I remember being at some random party in university, holding a beer and looking at the throngs of people around me who were drunk and stumbling. We have family prayer every day and read the scriptures occasionally. He knows that is a possibility.
